Freelance illustrator and artist. I'm a recent transplant from California's Bay Area to lovely Western Oregon. I live with an enormously fat orange cat and one house rabbit.

I went to school at San Jose State University, where I entered the animation/illustration program there, known as the Shrunkenheadman club. There I learned how rigorous the demands of traditional 2D animation could be, as well as the importance of strong drawing skills. I've been a compulsive life drawing attendee ever since. I graduated in 2000, and work in the game and animation industry. My clients have included: Electronic Arts, Namco, Factor 5, Naked Sky, Secret Level, Blackpoint Studios, Lightsource Studios, and PDI/Dreamworks. I worked for 4 years at Kabam, a casual and mobile game developer in San Francisco, but now have returned to freelancing.

You can see my work here on Flickr as well.
I am not on facebook, so if you see someone with the same name there, it's not me.
